Newcastle striker Adam Armstrong scored twice in Coventry’s 2-0 win at home to Wigan on Saturday, with his goals coming in the 15th and 62nd minutes, and he hit a post late in the game, and with a little luck he could have had a hat trick.
Adam Armstrong – scored two for Coventry Saturday
Coventry are at Rochdale tomorrow night in the first round of the League Cup, but Adam will not be playing as Steve McClaren has asked that he not be cup-tied this season.
Adam can also be recalled with 24 hours notice, so there’s some thought gone into the conditions of his loan spell.
It also suggests that Steve McClaren will go after the two cups this season and let’s hope we get a good cup run in both the FA Cup and the League Cup.
Coventry manager Tony Mowbray told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire after the game that Armstrong was a constant threat in the game, but that he would not be available tomorrow night in the League Cup – at Newcastle’s request.
Adam Armstrong also had this to say after the game on Saturday:
“It was a great day.” “I knew when I turned up at the stadium that it was going to be a good day.”
“I’m really confident in front of goal and I was delighted to see it hit the back of the net, it was a great feeling.”
“It’s a good standard and I really needed to be at my best today.” “You’ve just got to gamble as a striker and it paid off.”
“I hit the post late on which was disappointing but I’ll get my hat-trick next week.”
Here’s a video of his two goals and also when he hit the post – no wonder fans at both Coventry and Newcastle are buzzing about him.
Adam is on loan to Coventry until early January.
